Geological Discovery Finds Source of Earth's Water Similar to Biblical Account of Creation

A recent geological discovery suggests that the earth’s source of water is incredibly similar to what is recorded in the Bible

 

Genesis 1:6-8 reads, “Then God said, ‘Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.’ God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so. God called the expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.”

 

Breaking Israel News reports geologists discovered a diamond deep below the earth’s surface in Brazil that contained ringwoodite. The ringwoodite was 1.5 percent water contained as hydroxide ions. Scientists believe this could prove there is a store of water in the earth’s mantle. 

 

Graham Pearson, a geochemist at the University of Alberta in Canada said, “It translates into a very, very large mass of water, approaching the sort of mass of water that’s present in all the world’s oceans.” 

 

This matches scripture’s description of “waters below and waters above” in Genesis 1:7. 

 

According to Breaking Israel News, many researchers are finding the Bible more and more scientifically accurate.
